RH4.x->5.0 upgrade Sendmail/Procmail problems

RH4.x->5.0 upgrade Sendmail/Procmail problems

Post by Totally Los » Sun, 07 Dec 1997 04:00:00

After upgrading I had two problems with sendmail, first the new
procmail doesn't support "-a" anymore which required replacing
the "MAILER(local)" entry with a "MAILER(procmail)" entry in my
/usr/lib/sendmail-cf/*.mc files and remaking the .cf files. I
noticed that even the redhat .cf files still have entries with
procmail -a in them.

The second problem I cann't figure out, local mail works fine,
external mail always bombs with "stat=unknown mailer error 1"
in the maillog. What's wrong?


1. PROGRESS REPORT: Re: Minor probs. after upgrade RH4.1 -> RH4.2

Here's a progress report on some RH4.2 upgrade problems I had posted
about, which may or may not be of interest:

No progress as yet.  Presumably this is a RH issue and they will solve
it when they upgrade "glint"?  I didn't find a later version of "glint"
at RH than the one I already have.  Inconvenient but not fatal.

I reset the permissions on the cua* devices as follows:

crw-rw-rw-   1 root     uucp       5,  64 Sep 23 08:44 /dev/cua0
crw-rw-rw-   1 root     uucp       5,  65 Dec 31  1979 /dev/cua1
crw-rw-rw-   1 root     uucp       5,  66 Dec 31  1979 /dev/cua2
crw-rw-rw-   1 root     uucp       5,  67 Dec 31  1979 /dev/cua3

originally these had been crw-rw----.  If this is a security hole, no
flames: 1) please note, I'm on my own box; 2) tell me how to do it

I upgraded to XFree86 Version 3.3.1, no joy.  However, whether you need
this version to do the following, or you can do it with the older
version, XFree86 Version 3.2.9 which comes with RH 4.2, the key is to
insert the switch:


in the "Keyboard" section of XF86Config.  Got my numeric keyboard cursor
keys back, yeah!!!
